Today after Church we had mashed potatoes that I made from the gleaned potatoes I canned last fall. I also made roast and carrots. YUMMY! I am so grateful to my mom for teaching me how to cook. As much as I miss Sunday dinners at Mom and Dad's in Idaho, I am glad I can cook the same meal.....Right down to the Idaho Potatoes.

After dinner the twins opened presents.
Jay gave them bubble guns so we ran quickly to the yard to try them out. It is a beautiful 65 degrees today...perfect for bubble blowing.
Then we went for a drive to see the wind mills.

Nothing better then Sunday Afternoon with my 4 favorite guys.

Let the fun begin

The birthday fun has began......James and Jakub received there birthday cards from both sets of Grandparents.
From Grandma and Grandpa M.
And From Grandma and Grandpa S. Jakub pulled the sponge nose right off the dog.

Today I took them to Walmart and Target and helped them shop! I told the boys on the way to Walmart that we were going to use the gift cards to get scooters, they were both cheering the whole way. We found some way cute new swim suits and then it was to the toys section.

I had a few more items to pick up the the boys were very patient... SURPRISINGLY.
Once we got to the car I took the scooters out of the boxes because they wanted to hold them in their laps. They left the scooters and happily marched into Target to get some new shoes. When we got home they were so excited to try out the scooters.

Jakub picked up quick on what to do.
James mostly just put his feet on either side and walked his scooter.
This is the side of our house, there is a big side walk all the way around our corner lot.

Here is a close up of the shoes. Before baths I had the boys try on there swimsuit. They wanted to wear them in the tub.

Thanks Grandma's and Grandpa's we love you and miss you.

Half Moon Bay

We had a great Presidents day at the beach. Jay ran straight for the water and we had to drag him out when it was time to leave.
James sat right down in the sand and started digging.
Jakub changed into his shorts and played in the mud.It was a beautiful day. 65 degrees. Jay ended up taking his sweater off and swimming in the cold water.
Jame would put his foot up to the water edge and then run if it got to close.
Here are my 4 favorite guys.

From the Mailbox

It was a happy Mail Day. No Bills for me. And even better than that, the boys got cards from Grandma and Grandpa. They were so excited to open their Valentines Cards and find a $1 bill.
